Virtual learning environments support traditional methods.
We will provide you with a study environment that includes some of the best facilities and equipment in the world - from super computers to major historical archives, from wind tunnels to a national concert hall.

Seminars are used to explore ideas in greater depth.
Tutorials consist of even smaller groups, with your tutor providing guidance on the detailed study of specialised topics.
Virtual learning environments support traditional methods. Examples include ocean and land-based field trips, laboratory study, excavations, private and public sector placements and inter-professional group work.
